The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974, as amended. The purpose of this program is to support State and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Program areas may include: Planning and administration; State Advisory Group allocation; compliance monitoring; juvenile justice issues for American Indian tribes; prevention of substance abuse by juveniles; prevention of serious and violent crimes by juveniles; prevention of juvenile gang involvement and illegal youth gang activities; prevention of delinquent acts and identification of youth at risk of delinquency; and improvement of juvenile justice system operations, policies, and procedures including establishing a system of graduated sanctions, treatment programs, and aftercare.

For its FY2011 Title II Formula Grant award, Puerto Rico's Office of the Commissioner of Municipal Affairs (OCMA) will focus on the primary goals of achieving full compliance with the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act's separation and jail removal core requirements, and continuing the Territory's commitment to delinquency prevention. Specifically, the Territory will continue implementation of its non-secure areas project, work to improve coordination with law enforcement, seek to further enhance facility training practices, and support sub-grantee projects that provide service to youth at risk of becoming offenders.
